Los Angeles, CA (June 2, 2008) – Microtek, a world-leading manufacturer of digital imaging products, today announced a price reduction for the Microtek ArtixScan M1 and ArtixScan M1 Pro scanners. The price reduction is effective immediately to make these scanners more affordable. Microtek reduced the price of these two scanner models to their distributors and resellers; and Microtek lowered the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) to $599.99 for the ArtixScan M1 and $749.99 for the ArtixScan M1 Pro.
Featuring 4800 dpi optical resolution, multi-sampling noise reduction, exclusive auto-focus technology, and Microtek’s patented Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.£) for glassless film scanning, the Microtek ArtixScan M1 and ArtixScan M1 Pro have the high-performance specifications that photographers, artists and graphic designers need. Microtek chose to implement this price reduction directly through the sales channel for customers because it has an immediate impact on lowering their retail price. Some companies use mail-in rebates to lower the effective price, but mail-in rebates place a burden on the customer and often take 6 weeks or more before the customer receives the rebate payment.
The Microtek ArtixScan M1 and ArtixScan M1 Pro scanners are available now through distribution, mail order, online retailers, specialty camera stores, and selected retail stores. Additional information about the Microtek ArtixScan M1 and ArtixScan M1 Pro scanners is available online at www.ArtixScanM1.com.
